Music - Elementary

Music - Elementary – by Susanna Jacobson As a first-year teacher, I am delighted to be among the wonderful staff and students here at RMAE. I studied Music Education at CU Boulder (go BUFFS!) with voice as my primary “instrument” and graduated in May of 2017.Susanna Jacobson Photo

In my classroom, we focus on becoming active music-makers. My students spend a lot of time working together playing instruments, singing, folk dance, and creative dance. We then use these experiences to contextualize elements of music theory and music history. I believe music not only unites the mind, body, and soul; it is also a wonderful tool for teaching life skills, such as working toward a goal as a group.S Jacobson Photo

I teach K-5 Music at RMAE, as well as the Middle School knitting, bucket drumming, and line dance electives. In addition to teaching, I also work as the assistant choir director and children’s choir director at a local church. Sharing the joy of music with children is one of the greatest blessings in my life.
